West Bengal: Mukul Roy, son Subhrangshu set to rejoin Mamata's TMC
Kolkata/IBNS: In a massive setback to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), its national vice president Mukul Roy is set to rejoin West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's Trinamool Congress (TMC) on Friday.
Along with Roy, his son Subhrangshu, a BJP leader, is also set to rejoin the ruling party.
Roy is likely to meet Banerjee at the Trinamool Bhavan here.
Roy, one of the chief architects behind the TMC's assumption of power in 2011, quit the party in 2017.
He then joined the BJP in the same year.
Banerjee is set to chair a party meeting, which will be attended by TMC national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee and other top leaders, at the Trinamool Bhavan.
Rumours over Roy's joining in the TMC gained pace after Abhishek went to a Kolkata Hospital to enquire about the former's wife Krishna Roy's health.
